No sooner has one Monday gone then another one arrives in its place - so it is time to give Sian a wave over at From High in the Sky and report on my weekend.
Saturday was the Eurovision Song contest - so in line with family tradition I joined my Mum to watch it. We don't take it seriously - it is always quite a giggle and we enjoy Graham Norton's funny commentary. A special touch was asking everyone to raise a glass to Sir Terry Wogan at song 9, luckily we had just refilled our glasses with Prosecco.
Sunday found me busy crafting - I had a wedding card commission to finish (I will share very soon) and then I decided to get messy with Brushos - I haven't made any backgrounds in ages and I have depleted my stock of them. So the kitchen and lounge looked like this - good job Mr P was at work and wasn't around to witness the mess - luckily I always put down loads of plastic so it is an easy job to clear away. Empty pizza boxes that previously contained scrapbook supplies make a very good base for doing the messy crafting in!!
My next job is to overstamp these and gradually turn them into cards.
Monday seems to be a day for receiving happy post, first up I took delivery of these lovely notebooks - I'm planning to keep a travel journal on our grand Scottish road trip in June and a book with gridlines appealed - it made sense to avoid postage charges to order two and whilst looking up journal ideas I stumbled across a thing called bullet journals - hmmmm I think that second journal might come in very handy.
And the second bit of happy post was a lovely birthday goody bag from my dear friend Fine Bear Ted - he celebrated his 21st the other week and this is him with the card that I made for him.
The goody bag contained lots of sweets, a cake (which Mr P took to work), some novelties and a rather fetching pair of monkey sunglasses.
If we get a decent summer I will wearing the glasses a lot!!
Have a great week everyone - I will be making more holiday plans and getting ready for an imminent trip to Yorkshire.
